We have found our new daily walking path. Living in Galt, 13 miles north of Lodi, we travel daily to the wilderness area at Lodi Lake. It's walkways lead you through many trees, blackberries, creeks, river and wildlife, our favorite being the deer. Beautiful!

Yes Dogs are allowed on the park on leashes. Dogs are also allowed on rental kayaks and paddleboards if you rent from the boat house. The only area they are not allowed is the Wilderness Trail, to protect the wild life.
